Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar has dropped off of this year's Summer Jam concert presented by Hot 104.1 (WHHL). No reason for the absence was given. Lamar was to be the headliner for the event.
The last time the dynamo rapper was set to come to town was in December with Kanye West, as part of his Yeezus tour. That stop was canceled after some of the gear for the stage show was damaged in an accident.
In the last six months a bevy of high-profile pop and rap artists have canceled their St. Louis stops, including Big Boi, Miley Cyrus and West. Kendrick Lamar now joins that list...again. St. Louis just can't catch a break, it seems.
The Superjam lineup for June 21 is rounded out by Yo Gotti, Ty Dolla Sign and Cash Out, who will join Juicy J, Juvenile, K. Michelle, August Alsina, YG, Rico Love, Tinashe, K Camp and others.

We will update this post with any further information on Lamar's cancellation as we learn it.
